Nigerian Exchange's Equity Market Cap Closes at Historic N40.2 Trillion.

For yesterday's trading session, the NGX All-Share Index gained +1.28% to close the day at 73,397.71 points.

This impressive performance was driven by price uptick in megacaps like TRANSORP (+10.00%), STANBIC (+9.31%), and AIRTELAF (+4.87%).

This brings the YTD return of the index to 43.2% from yesterday's 41.75%. The entire equity market cap was remarkably boosted by N507.6 billion, to close at a record high of N40.2 trillion.

 

Driven by large gains in some of Nigeria's Tier-1 Banks (FUGAZ) - ZENITHBANK (+1.99%), ACCESSCORP (+1.33%), and UBA (+1.00%) - the NGX Premium Board Index also gained +0.30% to close yesterday. 

However, the NGX Growth Board Index slipped by a minimal -0.14%.

 

Sectoral Performance:

For the NGX Sector Indices, the NGX Pension Index took first position surging +1.79% on the back of gains from big names like CUSTODIAN (+5.88%) and AFRIPRUD (+5.07%). Coming in second and third were the NGX Insurance Index and NGX Banking Index, gaining +0.83% and +0.75% respectively, supported by upticks in companies like ZENITHBANK, ACCESSCORP, MANSARD (+4.31%), and WAPIC (+1.5%). All but one sector index performed well - the NGX Consumer Goods Index.
